The Hurricanes will match Montreal’s offer sheet and sign Sebastian Aho to a five-year, $42.27M contract extension ($8.454M AAV).
Aho (lower-body/concussion) will return to the Hurricanes lineup on Tuesday.
Aho has missed the last four games with a lower-body issue and concussion, but practiced on Monday and skated with Jordan Staal and Elias Lindholm in today’s gameday skate. Aho brings 16 goals and 21 assists (37 points) in 45 games to the Hurricanes lineup vs. the Senators.
Aho (lower-body/concussion) says he “feels good” and may return to the Hurricanes lineup on Tuesday.
Aho was back at practice on Monday and may be cleared to play Tuesday after missing the last four games with a lower-body injury and concussion. Aho’s return will be huge for the Hurricanes as he comes in second on the team in points (37).
Aho is out indefinitely with a lower-body injury and concussion.
Aho had to be helped off of the ice during Sunday’s loss to the Flames.
Aho was hit in the head and the knee on a dangerous hit by Mark Giordano, that resulted in a match penalty for the defenseman. Aho was favoring his left leg as he was helped off of the ice, but luckily for the Hurricanes’ leading scorer, they have the next five days off with a bye week. Monitor Aho’s status heading into Saturday’s game in Detroit.
Aho (lower-body) is expected to play on Tuesday.
Aho was hurt over the weekend but practiced on Monday and took part in today’s morning skate. Head coach Bill Peters said that Aho “should be good to go” so look for the talented second-year forward to play in Tampa Bay. Aho has six goals and four assists (10 points) in his last seven games.
Aho (lower-body) was a full participant in Monday’s practice.
The Hurricanes called Aho day-to-day with a lower-body injury after he left Saturday’s game in Boston early. However, Aho was back on the ice on Monday morning in a full capacity and it looks like he should be good-to-go for the Hurricanes game in Tampa Bay on Tuesday.
